Making sure you get the representation you deserve.

I fight for you!

A criminal accusation can be devastating! 

Hiring the right attorney is a critical decision you will make with lasting consequences.   Defending your case is an investment in your future.   I have handled tens of thousands of criminal cases including Driving Under the Influence (DUI), Battery - Domestic Violence (DV), Felonies, Misdemeanors and Traffic Tickets as well as driver's license cases with the DMV in my 30+ year career. 

When facing any type of charge such as a DUI, Battery - DV, misdemeanor or felony, you may go through a range of emotions: anger at your criminal charges, disappointment at your lapse in judgment, scared of the consequences (court, school, employment), and confused about what direction to turn.  Do NOT let the criminal justice system crush you!

Admitted to the Florida Bar in 1983, I have handled thousands of criminal cases ranging from DUI to Battery - Domestic Violence to misdemeanors to felonies.  Even Uniform Traffic Citations (UTC) involving alleged violations of driving laws.  No matter what offense you are charged with, my previous and extensive history as an aggressive criminal defense attorney will help me better represent you.

 I am dedicated to defending Driving Under the Influence (DUI) cases involving a refusal, a DUI breathalyzer reading over the legal limit of 0.08 Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) and intoxilyzer readings higher than a 0.15 BAC that requires the ignition interlock device.  Also impaired driving cases where the BAC is under .08 and a urine test is pending.  I will defend individuals facing their first DUI, second DUI, third DUI or other more serious charges of DUI.  I can handle your administrative law case regarding your driver's license suspension with the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (HSMV) at their Bureau of Administrative Review (BAR).  I have published over 100 articles on DUI topics.  Click here to review my recommendation on what to do after a DUI arrest titled your Post Driving Under the Influence Action Plan (DUI 5 Step Plan)or click here to look over my Driving Under the Influence Frequently Asked Questions


I defend people accused of Battery - Domestic Violence (DV).  DV cases are tough.  Facing a criminal charge of Battery – DV can be one of the most stressful times in your life.  DV charges are the most difficult cases to deal with as a defendant.  DV is treated differently than any other crime because you can find yourself by Court Order: homeless (no return), prevented from seeing your loved one (no contact), may be your spouse and sometimes even children, required to wear a GPS device (24/7) and additionally potentially lose your job, friends and your right to possess firearms BEFORE you are ever convicted of doing anything wrong.  This is true even in cases where the alleged victim says they do not want to prosecute.  Normally, domestic violence charges can’t be settled out of court (like other criminal charges).  Everything is so emotionally charged.  Although take note, it is difficult for the State Attorney to win DV cases.  The police take the accusations at face value. They don’t do full investigations.

I’m experienced in DV defense and

can help you protect your rights.
